When Keen Architecture were approached by their clients to design a small studio, basement, and workshop, the project evolved into a full extension for their heritage home, located in Fremantle, Australia.

 

The limestone and brick quoin house, dating back to 1901, was also partially restored.

Their design involved adding new living spaces, a kitchen, reworking the existing heritage rooms, and a workshop large enough to build plane parts.

Outside, there’s a patio area and green space for playing, and a BBQ area for outdoor cooking.
